Staying on the Napoli theme, which is undoubtedly one of Italy’s music capitals, with a hugely influential disco production during the 70s.
You can easily understand why, if listening to Feliciano’s “Ricordi”. A total disco monster that has always a place in my bag as a regular spin: fast-paced drums, plus a heavenly string arrangement, with the cherry on top of squeaking synthesizers, all made in 1978 as a flipside of a cheap ballad. Nothing in the market today reaches the height of such tracks in terms of …….everything! “Ricordi” means “Memories”….and the singer goes “no, no don’t tell me who you are…I already know what you want…Memories”.

Ballet Dancers


A ballet dancer (Italian: ballerina fem., ballerino masc.) is a person who practices the art of ballet.
Traditional, gender-specific titles are used for ballet dancers.
Since ballerino is not used in English, it does not enjoy the same connotation as ballerina. A regular male dancer in Italy is called a danzatore, while ballerino usually denotes a male ballet dancer in Italy. In the English speaking world, boys or men who dance classical ballet are usually referred to as (male) ballet dancers. Often “ballerino” is used in English-based countries as slang.
